Summary
"Is it true that the Sun is shrinking at such a rate that our Earth will disappear within a hundred thousand years? What happened to the Sun's neutrinos to make them disappear on the way to the Earth? Why does the fact that the sky is dark at night prove that our universe is changing and hasn't always been the way it is?"--BOOK JACKET. "Questions like these are posed - and often answered - in this delightful excursion through the Universe by John Gribbin, the noted award-winning astronomer and science writer who has been called the most prolific science popularizer since the death of Isaac Asimov. Here he explores the topics of his passionate expertise - often some of the more outlandish aspects of astronomy frequently shunned in the sober pages of scientific journals - including supernova explosions, neutron stars, white holes, black holes, wormholes, and inflation."--BOOK JACKET
